West Berkshire Council is gearing up to host a climate conference in October.
The West Berkshire Climate Conference will explore different ways residents, businesses, local organisations and the Council in West Berkshire can help tackle the climate crisis. The conference will be opened by Rt Hon Richard Benyon MP. A number of speaker led session and information exchanges will take place throughout the day. A conference agenda will be published in the coming weeks.
The free event will be held at Newbury College from 10am until 4pm on Monday 28 October.
West Berkshire residents are invited to attend the conference by booking admission in advance but numbers will be limited to four tickets per application. Tickets will be available from noon on Monday 16 September on our West Berkshire Climate Conference – Tickets page.
The event has been organised by West Berkshire Council following its declaration of a climate emergency in July 2019. It’s one of the first initiatives to come from a new Environment Board established by the Council which will create a new Environment Strategy and coordinate and oversee environmental projects. The conference also supports the Council’s priority to maintain a green district as set out in the new West Berkshire Council Strategy 2019-23.
